Thumbs up Starting with Embedded Linux


Hi,

Some members may not be aware of the Yocto Project. Not endorsing but bringing the project & tools for members that are not aware.

From Linux.com;
Getting Started with Embedded Linux and the Yocto Project

Quote:
The best thing to do is to rely on the Yocto Project documentation, starting with the Yocto Project Quick Start Guide. What follows below is a quick distillation of the information in the Quick Start Guide, but it is highly recommended to read the whole document before beginning. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg for embedded Linux development.
Plus the latest: Embedded Linux Development in 6 Easy Steps

HTH!

Hi,

Some old news: A tiny PC that runs Linux and Android 4.0 and costs just $74

PC World - Over the past few months there have been no fewer than three tiny, cheap Linux PCs making headlines, and now there's a fourth to add to the list.
First we saw the Raspberry Pi and the Cotton Candy devices emerge; then, almost exactly a month ago I wrote about the Mele A1000, a small ARM device that sells with Android but can be configured to run Ubuntu Linux as well.
The latest to appear? None other than the MK802 micro-PC, a USB-sized device priced at $74 that runs Android 4.0 and Linux.
I am still waiting for my piece of Pi, planned arrival sometime in Aug/12. Plan on putting ArmedSlack on the Pi.

EDIT: Tiny Pluggable Linux ARM Computers Are Red-Hot

Raspberry Pi is hackable, and even has a helpful Broadcom datasheet.
